I used to be up on auto trends, at least on the street scene. But that was a few years ago. Imagine my surprise when I first saw these headlights on several cars at a recent outdoor car show. I want them on my own car so bad now, but somehow it just won’t have the same effect as they do on this Challenger. I suppose I could buy a new Challenger, then buy the headlights for it. Yeah, that’s a plan.  Here is another example of a few cars with the same style headlights.

There are a few places that are known for a great view of the City of Houston skyline. This footbridge over Buffalo Bayou is one of them. So that mean’s that this image is nothing extraordinary from the many previous photographers that have shot here. But now I can add it to my list of “been there, done that.” Does that make me a official now? Who knows…   Nevertheless, it’s a cool place to view the extraordinary skyline of downtown Houston.

Flowers are both easy and hard at the same time to photograph. You can take your time composing your shot, since they hold pretty still but we see so many photographs of flowers, it takes something unique, unusual or beautiful to catch your attention. I actually enjoy taking photos of flowers and hope to do more in the future. But my garden just does not produce great subjects, so I have to find my subjects elsewhere. These soft circles were from a group of roses I brought home for my wife on our anniversary.

It’s best not to try and take this photo on the evening that they light the tree, as the crowds are much too thick.

It’s been a long day at the office and you stayed later than you wanted. It’s wet and cold outside in the big city. And it’s the holiday season. You’re ready to go home.

Not to worry, as the METRORail will take you back to your stop on your first leg of your voyage home. Hang in there. At the end of the line is a warm drink and a Lazy-boy with your name on it.

I can be a lazy person at heart. Such was this weekend. The weather wasn’t great and I was wanting to cancel on a trip downtown to meet a local camera club to shoot some skyline images. But my friend, David Morefield, talked me into going and I’m glad I did. After meeting the club by Buffalo Bayou, we soon decided to head out on our own for the streets of downtown Houston. The city had turned on their Christmas lights just the night before, so we found their large Christmas tree in front of city hall all lit and waiting for us.

I had the fortune to climb the Eiffel Tower while in Paris. I climbed as far as they allowed you to go at the time, which was the second observation level. The climb from ground level to the first level is over 300 steps, as is the walk from the first to the second level. Needless to say, I was a bit tired when I reached the top. About half way up, I realized that I had my camera backpack still on and should have left it with someone down below!

I’m usually the last person to find out about things. For example, did you know that there is an awesome race track in Austin, TX?  This is the real deal. The Circuit Of The Americas is something I never thought I would see, much less in Texas. Last week, I was fortunate to spend a day at the track for the US Grand Prix Here is a brief description about the track from their website…

Circuit Of The Americas is a multi-purpose facility that hosts prestigious racing events, including the Formula 1 United States Grand Prix™.  It is the first purpose-built Grand Prix facility in the U.S. Built around a state-of-the-art 3.4-mile circuit track with capacity for 120,000 fans and an elevation change of 133 feet, the facility is designed for any and all classes of racing. Circuit of The Americas is ideally situated on a 1000-acre site in southeast Austin, approximately two miles from Austin Bergstrom International Airport, with scenic views of downtown.

While it is not a cheap sport to watch (much less to participate in), watching it at this track is a thrill. With many vantage points for photographers and fans alike, everyone will enjoy a day at the races.

I took this image behind the paddock between curves 18 and 19. With speeds up to 200 mph on the straights, here they were only going about a 100 mph, since they were slowing down for a curve. Using a slightly slower shutter speed and panning with the car creates the blur that gives the sense of motion and speed.
